Welcome to Heriot’s
For 350 years George Heriot’s School has served as one of Scotland’s most distinguished schools. Today, it flourishes as an independent co-educational day school. Children between 3 and 18, from in and around the city of Edinburgh, form a vibrant school community. Together with staff, parents, governors, alumni, and friends, Heriot’s pupils hold true to the vision of Founder George Heriot.
The school seeks to provide a caring, well-disciplined education. We encourage responsibility, a desire for excellence, and a love of learning. George Heriot’s School welcomes children from all backgrounds. Each child comes with different gifts, and contributes in different ways.
Through the Trust established by George Heriot, our Foundation provides full fee remission for the children of widows and widowers who need financial assistance with the cost of school fees. For more information click here
